High Elf Strategy

by unknown (FUMMBL)

High-Elves

High Elves are arguably the best rounded elven team. With AV 8 on everyone except the Lion Warriors, and ST 3 catchers (4 players with Wardancer’s stats!) they can take more of a beating than Wood Elves while the 4 MA 8 players gives them an edge in speed and the long passing game over Dark Elves. In the early games, with few Catchers in the team, they will employ a mobile running game similar to the Dark Elves. As they develop, they become more and more a fast-scoring team, typically scoring in two turns, though they can delay against teams that aren’t likely to cause a rash of casualties.

High Elf Tactics

by Robert Arnholm (Blood Bowl Home of @rnholm)

High-Elves

The main problem with High Elves are the lack of Big Guys. All of the other team may begin with a big strong (stupid) guy, but not you. If your playing in a rough league with a lot Orcs, Chaos, Dwarfs and Undead teams this can be a problem. But remember, while you dont have an Armour Value[AV] of 9 you got somethine else.. With Agility 4 you can dodge out and minimize your opponents block opportunities. Overall the High Elves are fairly lowpowered, and their movment are generally insignifficant, but not that bad. With AV of 8 they can take a hit or two but they won’t survive in the long run.

Orcs

by Coach Blacknife and Nigel Buckle (Coach Blacknife's Dugout)

Orcs

Orcs are a popular team. A really popular team. There are a couple of reasons for this aside from getting the majority of your players free in the box! They’re a good all round team, but you can also specialise them to a degree. They also epitomise Blood Bowl; they are as green as the turf, as tough as the standard issue boots and could even give the crowd a good challenge in a straight up fight!

Skaven Strategy

by Milo Sharp (www.blood-bowl.net)

Skaven

The vicious Skaven live far beneath the Olde World in their burrows and warrens, but occasionally venture above ground to plunder, pillage, or play Blood Bowl! The Skaven Blood Bowl game revolves around their blistering speed, frequently scoring four or more touchdowns within a single game. Their fascination with the mystical warpstone leads to a greater than normal incidence of mutations within the Skaven species, and the best of these are put to use on the Blood Bowl pitch.

Humans

by Coach Blacknife with Mark Roberts (Coach Blacknife's Dugout)

Human

The most basic of all Blood Bowl teams, the Humans get runners, passers and catchers combined with decent speeds and access to the right skill tables at the right times. Reputidly one of the easiest teams to Coach, this team can be very forgiving of early upsets and bounce back remarkably.

While not as specialised as other teams, Humans can provide their own challenge for league play as you will find it difficult to win against experienced Coaches. Oh, and they come free in the box!

Skaven Tactics

by Coach Blacknife, Dr Pestilance, Coach Bubonic Plaguers, with help from Nigel Buckle (Blood Bowl Home of @rnholm)

Skaven

Skaven are an uneasy blend of low armour and very fast players. The Wood Elves have an advantage in that all of their players are more agile – which balances the low armour; the Skaven have to rely on their low cost to keep them supplied with plentiful replacements.(Which seems appropriate for rodents really.)

The Skaven are fast, but they break easily. Actually it’s remarkable as to just how fast these rats can run – this can infuriate your opponent if they’re not used to it. A good thing too, as it can throw them off their gameplay!

Skaven Strategy

by unknown (FUMBBL)

Skaven

Skaven are the undoubted speed merchants of the Bloodbowl arena; their play revolved around scoring fast, and using their speed to pressure the opponent when defending; their low armour generally doesn’t allow them to get into a protracted fight.

Goblin Strategy Guide

by Rickard (FUMBBL)

Goblins

First of all, if you really want to play the gobbos, then you have to realize that this game is all about having fun, and the Goblin team is all about creating chaos. It’s takes a different strategy to play with goblins and it’s hard. On the other hand, it takes a different strategy to play against goblins” too. Ok, now that you know that, let’s go over to buying the team.
